While visiting Canadian friends with some friends from home, we went on daytrips to Toronto twice, using the GO Train from Aldershot Train Station in Burlington. The train goes into Union Station in a section of the Financial District in Downtown Toronto on Front Street.
In touring the district, we soon found ourselves at Toronto Dominion Gallery of Intuit Art and Brookfield Place. Nearby was the Design Exchange, called the DX locally.
Our Canadian friend leading this daytrip told the building’s history. It was the original location of the Toronto Stock Exchange. It was built in the Art Deco style. It's now Canada’s museum of design. It’s a non-profit.
Admission to the DX is FREE.
The DX contains the Permanent Collection of Canadian Industrial Design. The museum has furniture, housewares, textiles, electronics, and lighting in its archives.
I felt rushed. I would have liked more time here to explore everything at a leisurely pace.
For what I did see, I rate the DX at 4.0.
